New Dragon Age DLC Follows Morrigan

No matter what you did at the end of Origins, there was no escaping Morrigan’s departure: either you pissed her off and she left, or you had the demon baby and she left. Needless to say, there was no real closure in that setup, and ever since then fans have been obsessing over how Bioware planned to tie that loose end. Just where is Morrigan going and why doesn’t she want us to follow her? What about the demon baby? This has got to be a storyline that continues onto Dragon Age 2, right? Well, it seems as if this new piece of DLC called “Witch Hunt” drops on September 7th for 7 bucks, and it promises to answer some of those questions.

The Bioware website describes the DLC as follows:

“The dreaded Archdemon has been slain and the advance of the darkspawn halted by a lone, heroic Grey Warden. The kingdom rejoices, but at least one question remains: what happened to Morrigan? The sorceress joined the Wardens cause, but it is said her true purpose was not revealed until the eve of the last battle. She vanished into the shadows, and while rumors claimed she crossed over the mountains into Orlais no trace of her path could be found. She was never heard from again… until now. Nearly a year has passed since the Archdemon’s death, and word has reached the Wardens that Morrigan has returned to Ferelden. She has been sighted in the southern wilderness where she was first encountered. Is it truly her? If it is, then why has is she here and what secret does she carry with her? The Warden heads into the forest to find out and tie up this last loose end once and for all.”

And, while yes, you’ll get to earn special items that you can import into Origins or Awakenings, here’s the kicker: at the end, this DLC is described as the “dramatic conclusion” to the Origins storyline. So, what better way to sing your swan song than to tie up the biggest loose end? Here’s hoping that this still isn’t the last we see or hear from our Witch of the Wilds, though–if we’re seeing Flemeth in DA2, we better damn well see Morrigan, too!


  1. Your reading of the announcement makes a lot more sense than mine (though we can continue to debate on Twitter if you want 🙂 )–especially when you mention Flemeth’s appearance in DA2.

    No matter how ‘disappointed’ I am, there’s no way I’m NOT buying this DLC and pre-ordering DA2 (probably BOTH the 360 and PC versions, the addict I am).

    • I’d certainly like for the loose end to be tied up in 2, except well–the god baby dillema and some wardens are dead and some people didn’t even have the baby…it’s too complicated. So I’m not surprised, and equally disappointed.

      If there’s one thing I am praying for here is that unlike the other DLCs, that this one is NOT combat focused. I will rage to hell and back if that is the case.
